Keyhole Surgery – Knee Arthroscopy Procedures & Recovery

Knee Arthroscopy (Arthroscopic / Keyhole Surgery)

What is Knee Arthroscopy (Keyhole Surgery)

Arthroscopy (Arthroscopic / Keyhole Surgery) is a common surgical procedure in which a high definition camera is inserted through a small incision, and images are projected onto a high resolution monitor. This provides a clear view of the inside of the knee and helps orthopaedic surgeons diagnose and treat knee problems.

Arthroscopy for the knee is most commonly used for:

  • Removal or repair of torn meniscal cartilage
  • Reconstruction of a torn anterior cruciate ligament
  • Trimming of torn pieces of articular cartilage
  • Removal of loose fragments of bone or cartilage
  • Removal of inflamed synovial tissue
